Evening

Join Damaris Copus for a friendly and relaxed evening, getting into the spirit of Christmas. Wreaths have much history and symbolism associated with them. They are usually made from evergreens and symbolize strength, as evergreens last even throughout the harshest winters.

Damaris will demonstrate and guide you through how to create a unique and long lasting wreath using your choice of freshly gathered greenery, beautiful berries and seed heads and, if you wish, ribbons or other trimmings.

Damaris has 25 years experience in wreath making. She started by making wholesale amounts of basic blue noble wreaths but quickly became more interested in nature inspired ‘wild wreaths’. When not wreath making or gathering materials from woods, hedgerows and meadows, she designs and plants up gardens for family, friends and clients. Her work could best be described as naturalistic. She loves bees, wild flowers and trees.

In this class

In this class students will pick up the essential skills needed to create a wonderfully festive Christmas wreath. These skills include:

  • Bending and twisting pliable lengths of willow, hazel or dogwood to use as your frame
  • How to use florists wire and tape to secure your foliage
  • Understanding design, proportion, balance and placing of colour in your wreath

Now you can

  • Gain inspiration to create more wreaths or table decorations at home with the family
  • Decorate your home with personal and unique decorations
  • Pass on all that you have learnt to others

**Keep **

There will be a large selection of materials available so that everyone can make their own truly unique wreath to take home. All materials and tools are provided by 'Fabrications'; all that is required of you is to bring a good-sized pinny to protect your clothes. Festive refreshments (mulled wine and snacks) will also be provided during the class.
